The University of Chicago Law Review has just issued a special issue, "Commemorating Twenty-Five Years of Judge Posner."
Of particular interest to TortsProfs:
- Saul Levmore, Judging Deception, 74 U. Chi. L. Rev. 1779 (2007). In this article, Professor Levmore discusses Judge Posner's contributions to the law of "deceit."
- Thomas J. Miles, Posner on Economic Loss in Tort: EVRA Corp v Swiss Bank, 74 U. Chi. L. Rev. 1813 (2007). Here, Professor Miles comments on the economic loss rule, which bars tort recover for purely economic harms unaccompanied by any personal or property damage.
- Alan O. Sykes, Strict Liability versus Negligence in Indiana Harbor, 74 U. Chi. L. Rev. 1911 (2007). Professor Sykes discusses Judge Posner's landmark opinion in Indiana Harbor Belt Railroad Co. v. American Cyanamid Co.
